For a dozen middle schoolers who attended a first-time academic summer camp at UW-Green Bay, looking back was important.
Looking forward, even more so.
The weeklong residential experience, “The Phoenix Scholar Institute for African American Girls,” is a program designed to close the academic achievement gap, and to address educational imbalances.
The Phoenix Scholar Program, a residential program at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay designed to promote the academic success of African American eighth-grade boys, is in full swing. Twelve eighth-graders from Franklin and Washington Green Bay Area Public Schools were nominated by a teacher, social worker, guidance counselor, administrator or a Boys & Girls Club staff member to attend the program, which runs from June 24 to June 29.
